EYFS Schools Games Day

What a lovely afternoon we had, taking part in our EYFS games day!

The children participated enthusiastically in a range of activities, including an egg and spoon race, a space hopper race, seaside race, bike race, water race, obstacle course and beat the goalie.

The children had so much fun and did a fantastic job. There was a great atmosphere and we must thank you all for coming to support the children!

Take a look at them in action…


EYFS at the Seaside!

Despite having typically British weather for our seaside day the Nursery and Reception had a brilliant beach day!

They enjoyed splashing in paddling pools, digging and building in the sand, donkey rides and bouncing on a bouncy castle!

This all made them hungry so it was time for traditional fish and chips!

Have a look at our donkey riders here! 

In the afternoon there was time for ice cream and a Punch and Judy Magic show!

Have a look at us enjoying the show here! 

What an exhausting but fun filled day at the beach! It just goes to show that whatever the weather there is fun to be had!

Year 6 Athletics

Wow, what a fantastic performance from our year 6 athletics team! Winners of the Salford Medium Schools Athletics trophy, we are so proud of you. It was a great team effort, with nearly all our competitiors reaching their finals. We had medal winners in the following:

Lucy Trenchard – 80m sprint champion.

Cameron Sinclair – 80m sprint champion.

Jake Kimmins – 60m hurdles.

Lucas Wood – longjump champion.

Abbie, Molly, Victoria and Lucy – relay champions.

Thomas, Cameron, Jake and Lucas – relay champions.

As always it was a great atmosphere with all our supporters and the wonderful team spirit from all the children. All of the team managed to secure valuable points for the team which made them the champions they are! Special shout out has to go to Ella for stepping in at such short notice to compete in the 600m race.

Personal thanks from Miss Curwen, who wishes to thank all the children and their parents for their commitment, determination and enthusiasm in all their sporting achievements whilst at Ellenbrook. She is going to miss them terribly – and her Ripples!!

During the excitement we did manage to get some photos, have a look……

Pirate day at Bring Yer Wellies for year 2

Another great day for Captain BlackBaird, Cut-throat Curwen and Killer Kelly and their pirate crew at Bring Yer Wellies. Our first tasks were to create our flag, decorate a bandanna and paint each other’s faces! Then in groups we did some grid reference work and made a pirate ship to race down the brook. After splitting into 3 teams, we then completed a treasure hunt in record time. Unfortunately, a naughty pirate had stolen our treasure but we found him in the pond and so put him in the stocks! After lunch it was time for a pirate obstacle course, den building and team games on the field. We couldn’t go home of course until we had raced our Pirate boats. What an action packed day!!

Nursery Runners!

Today Nursery headed out to complete their sponsored run! They had to see how many laps of the field they could run in 15 minutes! The children ran as a team and altogether they completed 14 laps of the field – a huge distance for little legs!



















The class decided that Thomas and Franki were the champions of our run as they completed all 14 laps with out a single break or rest! Well done boys! IMG_0709

Chinese New Year!

Nursery have been learning about Chinese New Year. They have learnt the story of The Animal Race and found out about the different animals in the Zodiac. They know red is a lucky colour and gold brings you wealth. They have taken part in many activities including; Retelling the story of The Animal Race, taking part in their own races, making a flying Chinese kites, painting Chinese flags, ordering numbers, making monkey masks (it is going to be the year of the monkey) and much, much more! They even had a go at using chopsticks! Have a look at them here!

They have enjoyed learning about different Chinese traditions and have helped prepare for our own Chinese New Year Celebrations next week by making a Chinese dragon for a dragon dance!
